My Story

In Loving Memory of Carmen Ortiz

Beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, survived by her children, Wilfredo Ortiz, Jr., Angela Wheatley, grandchildren, William Wheatley, Amy Guerra, great grandson, Jackson Wheatley, daughter-in-law, Mary Ortiz,, cousin, Rose Soler and friends.

Carmen was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and relocated to New York with her Mother, Angelica and Sister, Aida. She was a loving and caring person whom I had the pleasure of knowing since the age of three.  She was very devoted to her husband, children, sister and mother.  She was my babysitter as well as a very good friend of my family.  We thought of her not only as a friend, but as part of our family.    Her children, my brother and I grew up in the same neighborhood and graduated from the same parochial school.   Throughout the years, are friendship flourished and we never lost contact with our loving friend, Carmen.

We are very saddened by her passing but know that this is not the end to our beautiful friendship as we will all meet again someday.  Although she will be truly missed by those who loved her and by those whose lives she touched, she lives forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten.

Carmen, may God keep you in the palms of his hands for all eternity.  We shall never forget you...we love you and will always keep you in our hearts.

Love always,

Miriam & Family


Now that I am gone, remember me with smiles and laughter.
And if you need to cry, cry with your brother or sister who walks in grief beside you.

And when you need me, put your arms around anyone,
And give them what you need to give me.
There are so many who need so much.

I want to leave you something,,,
Something much better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known or helped in some special way.

Let me live in your heart as well as in your mind
You can love me the most by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,
By embracing them and living in their love.

Love does not die, people do.
So, when all that's left of me is love,
Give me away as best as you can.
